The British are elegant and friendly people, so it’s no surprise their film award ceremony is as delightful as they are. This year, not too many gowns wowed us, but there were several excellent choices on the London red carpet. Best Actress nominee Michelle Williams (My Week with Marilyn) shocked everyone by showing up in this sophisticated black and white silhouette from… H&M! While you won’t find this gown at your local mall, Williams still looks adorable with red lipstick, dark nails and the accessory of the season – an Arthur Miller book clutch from Olympia Le-Tan. (Fun Fact: Arthur Miller was married to Marilyn Monroe, who Williams was nominated for playing!) Bridesmaids star Kristen Wiig looked especially beautiful in a gathered white Alberta Ferretti gown and new brunette locks. Our final favorite was created by Valentino – the perfect designer to feature two days before Valentine’s Day! Best Actress nominee Viola Davis decided to take part in the Green Carpet Challenge (where celebrities sport environmentally-sound digs on the red carpet), wearing a one-shouldered light pink gown made of eco fabric and… recycled plastic bottles! Going green never looked so good!

This probably should have been a “Look-of-the-Day” pick a couple of weeks ago when Princess Catherine first wore it, but we waited till now! Kate Middleton, looking glamorous as always wore this belted lavender Alexander McQueen gown when visiting Los Angeles in July. (This editor was supposed to attend the Alexander McQueen Exhibit at the Met with one of her best buddies today, but work got in the way… Boo!) Her platform silver strappy heels were by Jimmy Choo and her earrings were lent to her by Queen Elizabeth. William and Kate were attending the BAFTA Brits to Watch event in LA after their visit to Canada (where Kate also looked fab). The couple fit in perfectly among the Hollywood hotties who were trying to schmooze with the royal pair – although Kate outshined all of them!
